Definitely rooting for the Giants in a couple weeks. I want to see a huge Super Bowl party while I'm living in New York... sure as hell ain't gonna happen in Minnesota anytime soon.

I don't really care who wins...I'll probably be rooting for the Patriots as I'm not really one of those "root for my conference" kind of guys...in fact I usually cheer for the AFC in the Super Bowl.  Some day Steve...some day!

Man what two epic choke jobs today.  That was Vikingesque

Well, both the teams I thought would win did, but not in the fashion I thought they would  Brady looked terrible today and the Giants did their best Tebow & the Broncos impression.  I will be rooting for the G-Men I guess.  That Packers loss will taste better if I know they lost to the eventual SB Champs.

What a great defensive battle the NFC championship was!  I'm glad the Giants pulled out the win, but the Niners played a great game.

Boo to two weeks of what is sure to be insufferable media coverage of Super Bowl XLVI: Super Bowl XLII 2: Super Bowl Harder.

I have not been to a lot of NFL games.  What's a fair price for 2 average tickets to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis?  Mulling over hunting a pair down.

I'm out...a really sucky season capped off by a ridiculously sucky Super Bowl. I already watched this game 3 years ago! B-O-R-I-N-G

San Fran vs Baltimore would have been WAY more entertaining.

I guess it seems fitting though, I'm so over all of the teams that are good right now and would really prefer to see a new crop of teams at the top of the heap for awhile.

Not sure, but I know Packers/Steelers tickets were around $3,000 last year.  That's silly money.

I'm not a big fan of the Patriots or Giants, but I'm glad they made it out of the final 4.  I find offenses more fun to watch, so this gives us the best chance of a shootout.  I could also do without 2 weeks of stories about how Ed Reed shattered Flacco's confidence.  And much as I'm impressed with how far the 49ers went, they're kind of boring to watch IMO.  Just like Denver:
 
Rush for a yard,
Incomplete pass,
Pass for 3yds,
Punt,
Rush for a yard,
Incomplete Pass,
50yd TD to V. Davis. 

2 big plays and 40 crap ones does not equal entertainment.   :P

Dressel, you may be looking at a few grand per ticket. Most Super Bowl tickets are basically reserved for media types and corporate big wigs, and it's pretty hard for average people/fans to get them, much less even afford them (one of the reasons the crowds are always so lethargic volume-wise). But if you're serious about going, best of luck searching for tickets.

As for the game, I like the Niners so I was obviously rooting for them, but you just can't stop teams that get hot at the right time (Giants). I'm not really excited about the Giants/Patriots again, but if I can accept an Alabama/LSU rematch for the College Championship, I can accept Giants/Pats 2. :P

Depending on where you want to sit your price will vary. I don't know indy's seating capacity, but my dad and brother got tickets for around 1,500 per seat when the Steelers played the Cardinals. With new York and Boston being larger markets, I would guess the median price will be much more this year. If your goal is to go to a Super Bowl just to say you went to one, this is likely not the year to try.

I was at Superbowl 25 when the Giants beat the Bills, working security in the VIP area....epic.

I saw people come out of there with stacks of tickets and scalping them like crazy.  They were going to upwards of a grand back in 1991.  You'd probably have to sell your entire SW collection now.

Great story from back then....I got to tell Jimmy Johnson to take a hike.   :D

Did he just lower his head and ram past you with his titanium hair?  Or did he just force his way past you standing completely "erect", as it were?   :P

A buddy of mine is a huge Giants fan and has season tickets.  He was looking at Super Bowl tickets and he said the cheapest in the stadium are $2,400 each.  Damn.

My boss and I were discussing the possibility of going to the Super Bowl when the Vikings were a FG away two years ago...I said I would never ever shell out that kind of cash for the game due to the possibility that they could potentially lose and I'd hate the fact of blowing $5000+ on that.  Call me an eternal pessimist!

He was really nice about it actually.  I couldn't let him into the VIP area without a special pass that he didn't have.  He tried to talk his way in at first and when I explained the situation to him, he just shrugged his shoulders, sais alright andd walked off.  More like stumbled a bit....it was obvious he had been partying in the NFC tent.

I also mt Mean-Joe Green and searched Tom Landry's Wife's purse.
